VU3NMXSO LP 10MRookie. I got my license on 13 June 2014. It was my first contest. It was a nice experience for me
VU3TMOSO LP ALLI got my licence in December 2011. Nice to participate in your contest for the 3rd time. I am 16 years old. Thanks for the 2 certificates.
W0LFASA HP 10MFirst contest with the new Force 12 Employees ARC club call. Conditions were pretty good except for a notable lack of Scandinavians in the log. Rig was Flex 6700 with Dishtronix amp running around 500 W. Antenna was Force 12 XR6 with 2 elements on 10m
W0QKLSO HP ALL1ST TIME CONTESTING
W0RAASA LP ALLStrictly S&P in this one. Looking for multipliers and the elusive ATNO. Got a couple new one and didn't get the clean sweep of Zones. I live in hopes. Still fun and band conditions were totally awesome. A totally fun weekend. Thanks to all who heard me and gave me a contact

W9BGXSO HP ALLMy First CQ DX WW SSB Contest from W9BGX
W9MSSO HP ALLPoor conditions generally from this location!
W9RESO HP ALLGreat 10 meters but bad 80 and 160
W9TVX/6SA HP ALLLicensed June 2013
WA0EBZSO LP ALLIn my opinion, best band opening this sun spot cycle. Had a fun time
WA1FCN/4SA LP 15MI am not much of a phone op, but think I should have been more serious with this one. I really look forward to CQ WW CW
WA4NZDSO LP ALLGood 10 and 15 meter band openings
WA5IYXSO LP ALL(2002) FT-847; (1977) 3-el 10-m Wilson Yagi @20' AGL, 3-el 15-m homebrew Yagi @14' AGL - each using Armstrong rotor so just aimed at Eu in local morns and JA in afternoons; 20-m and 40-m fan dip. @15' AGL peak. With the largest sunspot group since 1990 the solar flux was higher than in many recent years for this contest. However, I ended up with fewer Qs than last year* (and NOT because I was distracted by the Sunday trans-Atlantic 50-MHz F2 event as that only affected the eastern US). 10m produced the majority of my Qs, often going well above 29 MHz (where my longest run of over 100 was obtained Sun morn). Having an HZ1 call me a little later at 18z was the largest shock of the contest. Due to short time between 15 and 10m opening in the morns scant 21 MHz activity was done then. 20m staying open all night also reduced my 40m Qs. My 75m ant has been defective for a protracted time. *a late Sat morn start (overslept) didn't help that! (having to cut-n-paste exact freqs from CT-9 note file into log after contest always slow things down)
WA6KHKSA LP ALLI finally hear HV0A LC and I was stuck running low power with 2 amps down. I couldn't get any 572B tubes from RF Parts because they won't get any until December...I need a beer
WA7LTSO LP ALLNot too bad for an 81 year old!
WA7PRCSO LP ALLBy FAR, 10m was the big payoff band, followed by 15m and then 20m
WA8YSA HP ALLMY AMP BROKE DOWN AT 14:33UTC. A SOLAR FLARE BROKE THE BANDS FOR A WHILE SO I SPENT THAT TIME DUSTING OFF AN OLD AMP I'D NEVER USED. I'M GLAD I TRIED IT, THE FL-7000 WORKED AND MY QSO RATE WENT UP. I HAD FUN PLAYING RADIO IN ANOTHER CQ WW CONTEST, I AM HOOKED
WB2RSO QRP ALLGreat Fun
WB4EHGSA LP ALLBest I have ever done. The bands were kind to us
WB6CZGSA HP ALL10 & 15 seem to have been the best bands. However trying to work Europe I encountered the East Coast wall. Rig was TS2000, amp was AL80B, Ant was 80 meter dipole (at 70 ft) with a AT2K tuner fed with 450 ohm ladder line
WC2LSA HP ALLGreat contest, just very limited time to operate!
WE6EZ/5SO LP ALLOutstanding band conditions, especially on 10. I only wished stations would identify themselves more often. When working S&P its irritating and time consuming to hear stations calling QRZ 10 times before identifying themselves. It was fun nevertheless
WF0TSO QRP 15MCity lot + vertical = no one can hear me. Still a lot of fun!
WN7TSO HP ALLIt was a very casual hunt and peck effort. Great band conditions!
WT6HSA HP ALL10 meters was hot!!
WW7DSO LP ALLPlenty of fun, even though I couldn't devote full time to it. A wind storm on Saturday evening knocked power out for 26 hours, putting an end to contesting for the weekend
